Currently Reading: Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman

Feynman is one of the great iconoclasts of science - always following his own path regardless of the opportunities and expectations of others. A brilliant physicist constantly searching for the deepest and most pragmatic truths of the universe and himself, this is a compilation of his personal stories from learning to draw nudes to winning the Nobel Prize in physics. (Working on the Manhattan project as a precocious young physicist he often ran off into the Los Alamos desert to play bongo drums and howl at the moon). This is a classic, powerful collection of narratives from an unapologetically brilliant mind trying to understand what it means to be human.
